First prisons, Poland political soldiers, were forced to do labor and then it was used for exterminating Jews. What are the origin and consequences of Auschwitz concentration camp on people during the Holocaust? During the Holocaust, Auschwitz was then opened as a death camp, many people were killed, some survived the horrible years of treatment, then the camp was liberated when the Holocaust came to an end. Adolf Hitler, became dictator of Germany with the plan to annihilate the entire Jewish race, opening up Auschwitz as a death camp, then forcing millions out of their homes, organizing them at Auschwitz to prepare for their death. When the Holocaust began and Auschwitz came about the horrible treatment began to millions of people.
The Nazis horribly neglected, abused, mistreated, and degraded Jews, homosexuals, and many more in concentration camp. The camps, which were designed to make life easier, more efficient, and more pleasant for the Nazis, assisted in the killing of many people in large quantities by forcing them to contribute in dreadful medical experiments, and just killing them of any other way possible. No one knows how many died in the concentration camps, but it is estimated that more than 6 million Jews were murdered at the hands of the Nazis.
Concentration Camps during the Holocaust The Holocaust was a time in history that was brutal, sickening, and ruthless. The Holocaust refers to, “The systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of approximately six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators.” (ushmm.org) The Nazi’s came to rule in January of 1933 in Germany. They supposed that the German’s were “ethnically greater” and the Jews considered “mediocre” were a threat and problem to the German society. The German’s did not only target the Jews, they targeted Gypsies, Slavic people, Russians, the disabled, homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, etc. If those people were captured but not killed yet, they were sent away to concentration camps.
The Holocaust was a terrible time for people who were a different race, or if you were Jewish. It started in Germany in 1933 by a man named Adolf Hitler when he came into rule, but ended in 1945 when the Nazis were defeated by allied powers of the Britain and America. The term holocaust can be translated into Hebrew and it means devastation or ruin. The Holocaust was a mass murder of about six million Jews during World War II, a systematic state sponsored murder for Adolf Hitler and the rest of the Nazis and they invaded German-occupied territories. Out of all nine million of the Jews who chose to live in Europe, about two-thirds were killed in the Holocaust.
The Holocaust is one of the most famous events in modern history. The senseless slaughter of millions upon millions of innocent people at the hands of Nazi butchers was incited when a man by the name of Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933. The Nazis wrought terrible death and destruction on Europe in the following years, beginning with Aryanization and ending with the Final Solution in a maniacal plot to exterminate and purify the human race. The Holocaust should be remembered by all as a dark point in modern history. We must remember and draw lessons from the crimes committed against the Jews during the Holocaust if we are to prevent similar tragedies in the future.
The Holocaust is known as the mass murder of approximately 6 million Jews during World War II throughout German territory. This genocide was sponsored by the Nazi-Germans, led by Adolf Hitler. These persecutions were carried out in various stages, the final stage is known as “The final solution of the Jews.” Many methods were executed by the Nazi’s to strip Jews of their rights such as establishing laws, concentration camps where they would work until they died, resulting in the genocide of the Jewish people. These concentration camps executed the most extreme form of power and bureaucracy where everyone was forced to obey one persons order, Adolf Hitler. The primary document “The Commandant of Auschwitz” by Rudolf Hoess demonstrates the span of horror faced by the Jews and those detailed to work the concentration camps by the Nazi regime during what is known as the final solution to the Jewish question.
Approximately 6 million Jews and 5 million other people starting from the year 1933 were killed. They were put to death. There was one main person responsible for all of this. Adolf Hitler was a Nazi German leader who attempted genocide and was part of one of the worst wars in history, WWII. Hitler took up the role of initiating the holocaust which resulted in the death of many innocent people and numerous Jews.
The Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler wanted to eliminate all Jews as part of his plan for world power. Jews were not the only victims of the Nazis during W.W.II. The Nazis also killed millions of other people whom Hitler regarded as racially lower or politically dangerous. After World War II began in 1939, Germany's powerful war machine conquered country after country in Europe. Millions more Jews came under German control.
As tensions escalated in Europe until the point of the Second World War, another war raged beneath the surface, unbeknownst to foreign onlookers. Not only did Hitler and Nazi Germany start an unprovoked war that took the lives of over 50 million soldiers, they also exterminated millions of innocent people for no other reason than their religion. The Holocaust began in 1933, reached its peak during the Second World War, and came to an end with the war in 1945. Hitler used the Holocaust as a mechanism to purge his German state of any lesser people (especially those of Jewish heritage) that might be of some threat to his superior Aryan race. As a result of the Holocaust, millions of men, women, and children of various national, ethnic, and social backgrounds died or had their lives impacted forever.
It was a death camp that contained specially designed gas chambers with the capability to kill thousands. (Berenbaum, 120) However, in the short time it was operated, it was responsible for the deaths of around 870,000 to 925,000 Jewish prisoners. There were numerous other concentration and death camps that need to be accounted for that were just as cruel to prisoners as Auschwitz; Treblinka is just one. By comparing Auschwitz and Treblinka, one can realize just how horrific it was to be a prisoner in any concentration camp throughout the 1940’s. Treblinka is the second most important German wartime extermination camp in all of history and it can take credit for the greatest amount of killings in the shortest amount of time.
